5. Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes. Statistics show that chiropractic care is one of the safest forms of healthcare in the world.

When comparing malpractice insurance premiums paid by chiropractors to those paid by medical doctors, Chiropractic Physicians pay only a small fraction (approx. 1/20) of the price medical doctors pay. In fact, drug reactions are the third leading cause of death in the United States (The Journal of The American Medical Association, JAMA; Vol.284, July 26, 2000). Yet, of the millions of people receiving chiropractic adjustments, each year, only a handful will even make a complaint.

At this time, when our health care providers are becoming evermore critical of medication utilization and its side-effects, chiropractic remains a safe alternative and continues to become a preferred treatment option for many conditions.
